Contemporary Film Screening & Lecture: Lynn Hershman Leeson

An ArtPoint Educational Experience
Venue Legion of Honor Event Date March 21, 2018

Guests joined ArtPoint for a special night of music, art, and education at the Legion of Honor. The evening began with wine courtesy of Qorkz, small bites, and music from the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars. Attendees viewed artist Lynn Hershman Leeson’s newly commissioned work, VertiGhost.

During the night, Lynn Hershman Leeson and Curator-in-Charge, Contemporary Art and Programming, Claudia Schmuckli, discussed VertiGhost. Inspired by the Legion of Honor’s role as a location for Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958), Hershman Leeson's work explores the tension at the core of Vertigo between the difficulty or lack of desire to distinguish between reality and fiction versus the pursuit of truth.
